Moontripp – “Crime of the Century” single
“I want to find a way back to yesterday. Back from where we came. You must have lost all your empathy. It’s really bringing me down. Just don’t forget about history, it always comes back around. It was the crime of the century. Still trying to figure it out. Won’t let him get the best of me. I keep my feet on the ground.” – lyrics
‘Crime of the Century’ is a song about the crisis we face today due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, the song reflects the governmental (or POTUS’s) mishandling of the spread of the Coronavirus, resulting in collective despair. Furthermore, “Crime of the Century” contains a relatable narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the song possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with an alternative vibration.
“All you can do is turn off the news and bury your head in the sand.”
“This song is about the intense frustration and longing we all find ourselves experiencing in this strange new world. It was originally conceived as a critique of our current president, and has evolved to reflect specifically on his disastrous handling of the global pandemic.” – Moontripp
